More Blog Pimping

Shyam writes about a comment pimping Jhanki.com. I deleted the comment pimping ilaaka.com and onyomo.com here at MixedBag. Blogger didn’t stop it, but at ContentSutra, the Akismet spam plugin caught the post and put it where it belongs – in the Spam section, alongwith comments advertising weight loss phentermine, valium and other strange things.

The details of the comment:

Name: rajeev | E-mail: allpropellers@gmail.com | URI: http://www.ilaaka.com | IP: 61.17.76.30 | Date: October 5, 2006

Hi,

Nice blog!

Why don�t you consider writing about some of the new �India 2.0� sites that are creating a little buzz as well?

Eg: www.ilaaka.com

www.onyomo.com

Thanks!

Rajeev

A Google search reveals that your friend Rajeev has been quite active. He’s also got a blog here.

I’ve given ilaaka.com some feedback. If you’ve been spammed, you should too.

There’s also a possibility that since this means of promotion is counter-productive, this “Rajeev”could be ilaaka or onyomo’s competitor. Unlikely, but possible.
